Lyrics

verse 1
I be the smooth intellectual/individual/self motivated/educated man who's lyrical/not good enough for the world man pitiful/not draped in ice seen with vision/I ain't nice/yo the mic is my ice/in the lights I reflect/like an image on the set/yo the mind manifest/your now rocking with the best/yo the best right here/In the mind I make it rain/then the lights disappear/its the same ole things in the game/only thing that changed/is the age in the game/everybody talking bout the same thing/sell'n they soul/that's the price for the fame/grab the pen/add the name/to the line/lose your mind/everybody wants the blimp to read mine/ain't enough room/on the blimp for all see/that's why I just choose to be me/who I be

Hook
I be to be/who I am/not trying to be/who they are/so I be/what I wanna be/and not trying to be/what they want me to be/who I be

verse 2
I be the artisan/of my ambitious/breaking free of the chains of inhibition/my intuition will lead me to my position/knowing the path/gradually shifts/like the weight of a scale/that's always tipped/unequaled balanced/always challenged/heart of a lion/always defiant/against all odds/when I try to do the right thing/even when it's cause for me/to do the wrong thing/who the hell are you to say/yo that I'm wrong/when capitalism build their wealth off the strong arm/and the arm/of the law/is corrupt y'all/nowadays everybody get their hustle on/so I took the map out/it said to go south/I crossed that path out/and made my own route

Hook
I be to be/who I am/not trying to be/who they are/so I be/what I wanna be/and not trying to be/what they want me to be/who I be

verse 3
I be the self conscious lyricist/articulate/my thought awareness/the consequence/on my environment/from the lyrics we spit/is evident/that we lost intelligent/thought relevance/no more willing to do good work/benevolence/cast off for the deeds of/belligerence/see I was raised in this world/with that common sense/not the one to conceal/my intelligence/for that dollar bill/I rather keep it real/something you can feel/and known to educate/community elevates/but yet we devastate/kill each other/for the greed of the might dollar/but the dollar ain't mighty/in the final hour/don't you know intelligence/is the root of power/so if I got intelligence/then I got them dollars.

Hook
I be to be/who I am/not trying to be/who they are/so I be/what I wanna be/and not trying to be/what they want me to be/who I be
